The Harris Centre’s sixth Regional Workshop was held in partnership with the Red Ochre Regional Board Inc. (Zone 7) and the Nordic Economic Development Corporation (Zone 6) on May 3rd, 2007 in Plum Point, on the Great Northern Peninsula. Attendees included a variety of stakeholders from Zones 6 and 7 as well as 28 participants from Memorial University.

Over 70 people attended the Regional Workshop and the broad range of participants from Memorial University coupled with the diverse group of local stakeholders made for an informative, educational, and rewarding experience for those involved.

There were a total of 62 follow up opportunities identified at the workshop – 24 in Labour Markets, 21 in Cultural Heritage, and 17 in Natural Heritage.

We are in the process of following up on the opportunities identified at the Regional Workshop for Memorial to partner with the community. We are sure we can build on the energy and enthusiasm generated from the event to make these opportunities a reality.
